Custom Vaccination Plan

At Lakeside Veterinary Care in Cypress, TX, we consider vaccines to be essential to every dog and cat’s health regimen at every stage of life. Whether they are coming in for their first kitten or puppy shots or receiving their annual boosters, your pet’s immune system (and overall health) will benefit significantly. Dog and cat vaccinations in Cypress, Texas, can also reduce the spread of disease among the animal population and the human population.

Do cat and dog vaccines cause any side effects?

If any side effects occur after your dog or cat has been vaccinated, they are usually minor and resolve within 24 hours. These effects may include some soreness around the injection site, minor swelling, and/or sleepiness. In rare cases, some pets may have an allergic reaction to one or more vaccines. In these situations, we may recommend against vaccinating altogether, but that depends on the pet’s health history and other factors.

Overall, pet vaccines are very safe, and our veterinarians recognize that not every dog and cat needs every vaccine available. This is why we take time to learn all about your pet to find out exactly which vaccines they need and when they should receive them.

Why dogs and cats need to be vaccinated.

There are several core benefits to having your pet vaccinated on a regular basis.

  • First, by receiving their initial vaccine series as a puppy or kitten, your pet’s immune system receives a much-needed boost to help protect against potential infections.
  • Second, as your pet grows, they will need routine booster shots to maintain the highest level of immunity to various diseases such as rabies, parvovirus, and distemper.
  • Third, by strengthening your pet’s immunity regularly, they have a much greater chance of avoiding illness altogether or experiencing only minor symptoms from which they can recover more quickly.
  • Finally, as mentioned above, cat and dog vaccinations can effectively reduce or even prevent the spread of harmful diseases to other dogs and cats, and humans.
